HELP! TOO MANY APP RUNNING

Any advise? Please help my home version of xp seems to be hosed. Running very slow, very very slow.
Cpu running close to or at 100% 70-80 applications running. Dell sending new xp sw to reload, but im thinking/hoping may be a better way to restore it back to "normal" Really dont do alot on this pc. music, email etc nothing special.

Any advise would be appreciated.
